Mumbai: Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) on Monday filed an FIR against AIB comedian Tanmay Bhat over his ‘roast’ of legends Sachin Tendulkar and Lata Mangeshkar.
“Tomorrow morning, I am going to visit Shivaji Park police station and file FIR against Bhatt,” ‘MNS Chitrapat Sena’ president Ameya Khopkar said on Sunday.
Tanmay shared a video on his official Facebook page titled, “Sachin vs Lata Civil War (I make such nonsense on my Snapchat – follow me there – ID: Thetanmay) (Also I obviously love Lata and Sachin, just having some fun).”
In the video, he is seen making fun of Lata and Sachin by cracking offending jokes on them using face swap filter on Snapchat.
These are a few lines used in the video that received a lot of criticism and negative responses from the fans of the comedian and the celebrities he defaced:
“Phuck Virat. No, I’m very respectful for Virat. He is very good with bat and ladies.”
“Lata tai namaskar. Very respectfully I’d like to add that you are 5000 years old.”
“Your (Lata) face looks like someone has kept you in water for eight days.”
“Just look at you. Jon Snow also died, so you (Lata) should also die.”
